Why I Took a Break from Blogging

8Aug15Well, because I needed to.

I became a mom.  I went back to work as a nurse.  And I still had to find time to be a housewife.

It rocks.  I love my life.  But something was definitely slipping away and for my sanity I needed it to.

I have big dreams for this blog.  Not saying I dream of being a full time professional blog or because I want to sign a deal with any major brand to do x, y, and z.  I simply dream to build a place online where I can build connections with others.  It’s why I firmly refuse to commit to any “one” niche: parenting, home, marriage, etc.  I have lots of passions and I know I’m not alone.  I want to encourage, inspire, and introduce you all to ideas and products that could better your life and in return I want to be encouraged, be inspired, and be introduced to new ideas and products.  It’s a wonderful circle.

And I was getting to the point where I couldn’t do that.  Though I’m not sure if I can completely now, but I am going to try.  Because I miss being a part of this wonderful community.  I have met some truly inspiring people and have started friendships.  And, I need this as at least as a hobby.  I would find myself twiddling my thumbs one day and you know what?  I would think about a great blog post.  I would discover a new product and I would want to review it and share it with you.  I wanted to reach out when I had a parenting question and didn’t really know where to turn but got the best advice from one of your blog posts.  When my husband and I were having difficulties, I turned to a favorite marriage blogger of mine to at least begin to get some ideas.

I took a break for more than my sanity.  But also so that I can make sure when I come back I can give more of myself and higher quality content.  Because I don’t want to do anything half-ass… if I can help it at least.

I mean, I went from pregnancy brain to mama brain folks, and it’s a real thing.

So get ready for my comeback/return.  Please read yesterday’s State of the Blog for more on how I’m moving forward and We’re Back post from Monday on what you can expect on the blog this month!

And please say hello below or on social media.  Feel free to email me.  I’ve missed a lot so catch me up on anything and everything!
